And my fall sewing spree continues…I’m trying to stock up on work appropriate clothes. I have spent a lot of time in the last few days matching up plaid and stripes, but it’s been worth it. This is view B Vogue 1297 from the 70s. I want to make all 5 skirts!

Material Notes

wool/poly blend, zipper, button
